Hey Chris,

Tell the story right Tongue. I got 2 on the white grubs another that fell off a foot from the tube and that big one that straightend my hook. Can't forget that one now! How I wish I could of at least got a look at him! Oh yeah, the smallie that followed my rattle trap to the surface.

I spoke to the two guys that where floating next to us they were catching crappie on small rappalas.

The best keepers are the ones that are allowed to swim away. Keep the memories, write the story and retain a photograph as irrefutable evidence that the encounter did exist; but let the noble adversary go. Let him swim away back into the life and the place he was before your challenge. Know in your heart that he swims on and hold the memories of that grand encounter as the true trophy of the day.

I am bummed I could not get out with you guys. Like I said, I would probably have to work and guess what? I am still working. Sounds like a lot of fun was had. Great to hear your and BLM's report hopefully I can get out in a few weeks with you all.

Although I was mainly test-driving a new float tube Im interested in, I did manage to catch one wiper. That's 1 wiper a trip for the last three trips out. Not exactly what I'd call record breaking, but hey, THAT'S FISHING! The fish I did catch had some sort of affinity with the bottom of Willard, because every time he got close to the surface hed make a beeline straight to the bottom. I had a hell of a time fishing with these guys. Well have to do it again, for sure!

Hi aquaman, hustler, petty and ram,

Sorry I missed you guys. I was planning on dropping by but my fishing partner called up and wanted to leave at 5:30 am to go bass fishing at Mantua. Just posted about it. By the time I got back and had my cool one I was washed up.

Question - how are the bugs? I was out there about 3 weeks ago and they were't nearly as bad as I expected!!! I can remember a few years ago I couldn't eve breath with them flying in the nose, etc. Am thinking of trying tomorrow night but am a little worried about crowds and holidays. Do you guys think that boat launch conditions will keep most off the water and out of the camping areas??

Earlier in the year I caught a few small walleye out of my tube. I was fishing from the west dike using chartreuse mister twisters & 1/4" glow in the dark lead-head, and a piece of worm.
